WSRT Instruments

Upgrading the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope has been an almost continues process, starting from the conception in 1968 until today. A major upgrade of all WSRT systems was completed in 2003, including the new Multi-Frequency Front-Ends, a wide-band IF system (IVC), the powerful DZB correlator and a new Telescope Management System. The development of Apertif can be seen as the climax of over fourty years of refinement and upgrades.
